abemorsten (2831) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2012
From tap at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. ABV is 10% according to my notes from the beer menu at the booth. Body is dark like coca cola with a creamy tan colored rim. Dried fruits, raisins and wooden notes like a fruity liqueur on the nose. In the mouth it’s fruity, acidic and citrusy. Medium bodied and flat and a mouth feel of grapefruit juice. Short end.

330 mL bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Dark brown pour with a frothy beige head. The aroma really showcases the oak and red wine with only a hint of sourness. By the time I have typed this far the head has quickly disappeared. Surprisingly tart taste with an undercurrent of chocolate that helps to cut the sour bite. The marriage of red wine, oak, cocoa, raspberry, just a touch of coffee, and the slight warmth from the alcohol all blend together beautifully. An exceptional sour ale.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Light tart malty flavor with a lingering finish.

kindacold (210) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Pours dark red, no head. Smells like oak. Tastes like a stout mixed with a sour. Creamy charcoal and toffee mixed with vinegar and berries. Slightly sticky finish.

DialSquare (2757) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Bottle from Knightly on Orange Blossom. Medicinal looking deep brown pour with very little head that leaves a slim tan ring. Sweet tart, cherry, wood and dark fruit in the aroma. Tastes are oak, port, caramel, cherry, raspberry, vanilla, figs, vinegar. Oily texture. Light even sourness. Dry in the finish. I could drink gallons of this stuff - really nice.

nuplastikk (4567) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Grenade bottle at Brasserie V. Pitch black with a thin, oily beige head. Quite sour and vinous aroma. Grape, plum, funk. nice! Lactic smooth body/mouthfeel. Quite light and watery, really balanced by the sourness. A still black ale mixed heavily with a sour. Quite nice, delicate. One of my favorite styles, the sour black ale, and they nail it, as opposed to a lot of other wine barrel beers Ive had. Delicious, a great Belgian beer.
